Q:   Do you have a pet peeve about books? 
A: This feels like a loaded question as I sit here trying to think of an answer... and yet, I struggle to come up with one.
Okay, I'm probably not a fan of dual views, or multiple views for that matter. It has to be done right, like with Violent Ends by Shaun David Hutchinson. Check it out on Amazon; Fuck, that book  is epic!! Anyway, not usually a fan, I like my protagonist to be the only viewpoint. I'm boring that way. 
Oh, and I hate reading old English. UGH. So there's my peeves I guess. I probably have more and just don't know right now though. I irk easily... LOL

  1. It's been years since I read Edgar Allen Poe! Sound like fun.

  2. Love Edgar Allan Poe! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I don't think I've read Poe since junior high. I wonder if it is time to give one of his short stories another try. Hmmm. My book LEAVING TIME

  4. Terrifying Tales is on my TBR list. Enjoy your current read!

  5. Thanks, I will add this to my classics to read! Have a nice Friday

  6. Now I want to go back and read The Tell-Tale Heart after years and years. Oh how his mind must have worked! Love it. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week.

  7. The older I get, the more I appreciate his stories.

  8. Interesting excerpts. Have a great weekend!

  9. Poe is amazing. He was a pioneer is so many different genres.

    Yes, multiple points of view are very popular, but I find it comforting and easier to read when there's only one of two.

  10. It's been quite a long time since I read Poe. Maybe I'll pick his works up for Halloween!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
